Bare metal backup and System image backup on windows 7

Hi,

There is an option bare metal backup on windows backup and restore in Windows Server 2008 R2. Is the bare metal backup same as full-backup on windows 7? Because I do not see the bare metal backup on windows 7 but the full-backup is available.

System image backup on windows 7, is this same as the system state backup on Windows Server 2008 R2?

What is difference between bare metal backup and system image backup on windows 7?

Yes it is the same. Bare metal backup saves all partitions plus system state. Full system image does the same.

Granular recovery for Microsoft Exchange

With Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange you can choose the Exchange Servers and restore points you’re interested in, and Veeam Explorer will present the contents of those mailbox stores for browsing, searching and exporting.

One last question. For the workstation backup, I make system image backup onto external hard disk and I also make full-backups of workstations onto a single backup server. Is this the recommended method?

For the server backup, I make bare metal backup of each server onto a single backup server. But not the system state backup of each server. Would this be right?

Yes, this is a good approach storing backup images on different locations/storages.
As for the server, you do bare metal backups and system state is included. No need to do additional system state backups.
